I have to thank the protestors of chick filet.  I hadn't eaten there before all the controversy and decided to give them a try.  Talk about some amazing chicken!  So a big shout out to all the protestors, thank you for introducing me to this great, wholesome chain.

I had never ate at chick-fil-a until my friend who goes to the first 100 grand openings took me and raved on about their ethics and pride in providing excellent service. i love their very polite service and the fact that you don't have seemingly dim witted uncaring people behind the counter. whenever i go into chick-fil-a it is such a friendly place, i wish my town had one. i have seen the CEO, and he seems like a genuinely nice person and very down to earth. yes he spoke his opinion on his beliefs on marriage but he didn't say he didn't need/want their business unlike the CEO of Starbucks who said he didn't need any Christians business. Which is ok because Starbucks doesn't give me the personable vibe that chick fil a does and it's overpriced to boot.

I finally got to try Chick Fil A.  It was great and I will stop in from now on. Fresh, tender and very tasty chicken and the place was spotless.

LOL!!! Liberal democrats tried to destroy Chick Fil a because the owner has different views than them although he does not discriminate against employees or customers. It only made their brand stronger...This makes me laugh!    People are wising up to and are getting pretty sick of you people and your agendas that you try to force on the rest of us.

I'd definitely welcome Chick-fil-A in my area. A good quality proper company. Food is good too!

As opposed to a certain burger company who's 'Frisco franchises now promote the pervert life-style with their special wrappers.

I love everything about Chick-Fil-A, especially putting the Lord Jesus #1!! He is the only way to the Kingdom of Heaven!!

I wish we had a chick-fil-a and a 4 guys burgers around here to show people what real fast food is like. Apple can stay in their super expensive mall stores. I don't know how dollar stores keep growing, there's one on every corner around here.

Chick Fil A waffle fries are really good, their spicy chicken is great as well as their salads that are a meal in itself. I am only wondering why this good eatery is listed in a story about retailers.

Regardless of your political views or sexual preferences, this restaurant serves up some amazingly delicious chicken sandwiches at a very reasonable price. Their employees are always cheerful and pleasant and their establishments are kept super clean. Come on now be honest, Isn't that what all people want in a quality fast food restaurant? I only wish they were open on Sundays!  However, I do respect the owner's right to abide by his religious beliefs and principals whether I agree with them or not. That's what makes this country so great.

Seems to me, those that hate to be controlled,  love to control.

Once again be cautious folks, its Friday, don't get fooled by being up 50 or 60 points, plenty of manipulators ready to pull the trigger...After the last couple of days these scumbags are fit to be tied...They will not go away...Be careful people...More later

 The statistics show that households headed by conservative Christians  give 30% more to charity then households headed by liberals.---- Maybe neither one is giving what Jesus asked???? Here is where we as Christians tend to get lost, I doubt that Christ cares anything about statistics but more about how each of us treats our fellow man (remember every human has a soul that God cares about). Telling people that they have to have children and then depriving them of healthcare, food, shelter, probably is not what he had in mind? I believe in the Bible God is the one that judges?
